Of all the restaurants we've visited during this trip, this was by far the best! Cannot find better or more authentic cuisine

“Great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Very welcoming family run restaurant. Really good food and very friendly service. A little out of the way but like most good Italian restaurants it is down a narrow alley. We visited Il Bastione twice, the first for just one drink but stayed for a Limoncello. Were talked into coming back for dinner and we were glad we did. The extended family were there that night and also spoke to us even though their English was not good and our Italian was worse. We had a great night.

Seafood is a specialty,

“The host made us feel welcome :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This was the only restaurant in Italy that I visited (in the last week) that the host was happy to serve us. He was patient with us and even made some welcoming recommendations in the menu. He was attentive (without being pushy). This place is for those who just want a good Italian home-cooked type meal, without the fuss. The portions were generous. We chose the main & dessert deal and were very content.
